As Told By Ginger is an animated series which debuted on Nickelodeon in 2000. It was created by Emily Kapnek and was the last original Nicktoon produced by Klasky-Csupo (the creators of Rugrats).


The show revolves around the life of Ginger Foutley, a typical junior high school student who lives in a fictional Connecticut community named Sheltered Shrubs. She often tries to improve her social calendar and become more popular, but usually gets mixed up in jams because of guidance from her three best friends - Dodie, Macie and Courtney - and the schemes of her nemesis, Miranda. Ginger also receives guidance from her mother, Lois, who is a nurse at the hospital. Every episode ends with Ginger writing a story in her diary recapping the events of the show.

The series is unique among other Nicktoons, since it is a coming-of-age teen drama series, has an ongoing story arc, deals with mature subjects, the characters age, change their clothes and there is little-to-no comedy or fictional stuff at all. As a result, the show was the only Nicktoon to be promoted to the TEENick block.
